Your eyes are precious things that can bring the world to you, but they are also extremely complex yet delicate sensory instruments that need the dedicated care of a trained and experienced eye care professional like our optometrist in Fort Wayne at Fort Wayne Vision. Our doctor will examine your eyes and is dedicated to preserve, protect and ultimately enhance your vision as well as cater to all the eye care needs that your whole family requires.
Most people visit an optometrist in Fort Wayne or in any other community to check their eyes for glasses or contact lenses to see better. While prescribing vision corrections are a very important role that optometrists play it is not the only role our doctor plays when it comes to your eyes. An optometrist is sort of the gatekeeper to your eyes checking to see that they remain healthy or get the proper treatment if a problem does arise. A comprehensive eye examination once a year is the best way to ensure the continued good health of your eyes. Our doctor will discuss your health history and family history as well as any concerns you may have about your vision and eyes. There will be a refractory examination that will measure your visual acuity and prescribe any necessary vision corrections in the form of eyeglasses and/or contact lenses, which our optical shop will expertly fill. This is commonly referred to as vision screening.
The vision screening is just a part of our practice’s comprehensive eye exam. Our optometrist in Fort Wayne will then conduct a dilated eye examination that allows the doctor to see through to the back of the eye. Our examination room is equipped with the latest ophthalmology diagnostic technology that allows our doctor to check the structure of the eye for any abnormalities as well detect and diagnose any current or developing eye disease. Devastating diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration can develop slowly with virtually no warning until they have reached an advanced stage where vision can be lost and may cause blindness. A comprehensive eye exam from our practice is the only way to detect these diseases early when treatment is less invasive and much more successful. Call our office for an appointment with our doctor for a comprehensive eye exam to help save your vision and your eye health.
